Christopher Walken is an excellent dancer. You may remember that from his owning of Fat Boy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” video from the early 2000s.
That little detail may have gotten lost for most, though, in his critical mass of outstanding comedic and dramatic performances (and sometimes a lot of both in one role) but the facts are the facts: He has moves. Proof? This “Christopher Walken Dance Now” supercut from Huffington Post Movie Mashups. It’s all 57 of his dance performances over the past 37 years, which are all listed here. It also just made my day, and it may do the same for you.
Warning: C+C Music Factory earworm warning absolutely included.
Yes, yes, I know something goes viral seemingly every second on the Internet. There is something you “have to watch” or that will “change your life.” That’s not necessarily true here, but what I will say — as an admittedly rather big fan of Christopher Walken, so take that for what it’s worth — is that this was well worth my five minutes. That’s mostly because it made me want to watch a few Walken movies, and it also made me want to dance. I’d say that’s a wannabe-viral-video job well done for your average person needing a mid-week desk chair dancing break from time to time.
